Forever - Poem by Alexander Hale

Badly beaten she stands strong.
Though her speech falters, confidence rings in every word.

'Never again will you do this to me'. She vows.

She stands in front of the man.
Just a stranger to her now.

Waiting for the next blow.

He strikes her violently, across the face.
She falls to her knees, battered but not broken.

He yells and screams.
Only blaming her for what he has done.

Refusing to submit.
She fights back.

Her briused body only manages a pitiful punch.
Unable to defend herself, he finishes her off with one final blow.

She falls and will never rise again.

But forever insolent
Her spirit remains with him.

Forever haunting the man she thought she knew.
'To death do we part'.They once vowed.
